    Site Requirements and Hosting Link to this post

    Hi guys,

    What has been your experience with finding commercial, reputable web hosts that meet SilverStripe's system requirements? That is, how often are PHP5's gd2, mysql, mcrypt, mbstring modules enabled, the max memory set above 32M and a PHP accelerator installed?

    Are there any NZ-based PHP5 web hosts who offer shared hosting that can be guaranteed as SilverStripe-friendly, or does one need to look at offshore alternatives?

    Thanks,
    M.

    I'd be interested at prompting others about this; those who have downloaded SilverStripe and got it going on their webhosts. We run our own boxes, which means we run whatever Debian (Etch) is up to, currently 5.2.0.

    http://packages.debian.org/testing/net/libapache2-mod-php5

    You have inspired me to contact some NZ hosts, given this was a topic on the NZ PHP Group a few weeks back, and I didn't see anyone shout out and say a domestic webfarm style (under $30/month) business provided PHP5 hosting. It seems to something that premium hosting companies (e.g. $100+ a month) provide (there are a few of these, including ourselves), from what I can tell.

    I see http://www.a2hosting.com (international) being mentioned a bit, and this provides PHP 5.2.1 currently, as well as subversion, ruby on rails etc, so these guys are obviously providing a decent service rather than lazing about with draconian server software versions.

    MattV, a wee chat happened just before Easter and we figured the mbstring requirement wasn't necessary. All in response to trying to make SilverStripe easier to install

    201rc5 now no longer has the check for mbstring, please let us know if any mbstring-lacking servers have issues with SilverStripe by posting to our bugs forum

    Thank you for the tip on A2hosting.com
    They are a great price and the install went without a hitch.
